Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Anytime you wash the motor, you need to cover up any thing that is electrical. In most cases, when given time to dry, they will start again. If it doesn't, you probably need it put on a machine for a diagnostic test. Since you have no power, you can start by checking the charging system. Check your battery and make sure it holds a proper charge. Make sure the terminals are cleaned and tight. Make sure your battery is not leaking. Check all wires and fuses as well. It is possible that some were blown. How long has it been idle for?

My2006 envoy having problems starting

Battery problem. Start with both cables. Make absolutely there is no corrosion on the ends. Clean with baking soda and water. Hheck the water level in each cell . Add water to just cover any exposed battery plates. Charge the battery with a battery charger. Try starting again. If you still have the problem check the starter solenoid on the starter itself. Take the starter motor off and have it tested.

Check brake light connectors for green residue if so spray with WD40 to clean. Also change bulbs even though they look ok they could still be knackered.

The code P 1684 is showing in my car and it won't start. When you turn the key it sounds like it wants to start but won't catch.

P1684 means that the battery was disconnected within the last 50 starts. If you (or someone else) disconnected or in any way fiddled with the battery for any reason, the cables may not have been reconnected tightly...or the cables and/or battery terminals may need cleaning and the cable connections re-tightened. Out of curiosity, do you have electrical power e.g. lights, horn, accessories, etc.? If so, you may have the cables connected but not clean or properly tightened - connection is solid enough to provide power for other electrical requirements, but the heavy draw from the starter motor is more than the cable connections can handle. If cable connectors/battery terminals are corroded, cleaning with a wire brush (or even an old toothbrush with a paste of baking soda and water) may solve your problem. Make sure your battery connections are firm and tight.

I have a two cylinder volvo penta saildrive 2002 model, their seems to be little or no water coming from the exhaust when the motor is running. i have recently antifouler the leg and cleared the water...

Check your impeller in the seawater pump ( at the front of the engine )
If the impeller blades stays even lightly bent after removal, change the impeller.
Check for obstructions in the hoses.
Remove the water hose going to the exhaust.
Run the engine, if here you have a good water flow ( more than at the exhaust itself ) the the exhaust mixer is obstructed. Try to clean out with HCl acid. USE ACID resistand GLOVES. Rince twice as well after the obstruction is gone...

Car spudders when i put in gear

This is water in your fuel lines. when it was very cold, the water in the lines froze. when it melts, it runs to the injector system and causes these types of things to happen during acceleration. i would pick up some techtron. ths is good stuff. it will remove the water and, clean out the fuel system.
